Well, its been awhile since I have blogged and I thought I would share some things. Evan is 15 months old and is still nursing and on Neocate Nutra twice a day and drinks some water out of his sippy cup. He is addicted to nursing....which is nice because I love the bond, BUT I will be happy when he is on other things. I am in the middle of trialing carrots with him and he does ok on the occasional Neocate One+. But I am not consistent with the formula because he wont take a bottle and drinks only from a sippy cup, so he doesn't drink enough. Sometimes I am so frustrated. He is 15 months and is the size of a freakin 9 month old, 18.6 lbs. I feel so stuck and alone sometimes in this and I feel so fortunate that I atleast have this and the support of you ladies. I want to try new things with him but I think he has aversions to food. He gags a lot and is on stage 1. But every day I give him a little more carrots and he seems okay with that.


  1. So sorry. Miles is about to turn 15 months old. Still mostly on breast milk also. No formula but we are getting quite a list of safe foods. He eats everything in chunks now. He will eat puree's but not many. I am listing the foods he eats now (copied from another website) so maybe it can be of some help.
    I am so sorry this is so hard. I know exactly how you feel, things are getting better for us and I hope they are for you too.

    I also make everything for him, he's never had baby food. Veggies are just so quick to warm up so its working easier for us right now.

    Fruits we now eat:
    Bananas - freeze dried and fresh
    Strawberries - freeze dried
    Apples- freeze dried, apple sauces and fresh shredded
    Blueberries- freeze dried and frozen
    Mango - freeze dried (not his favorite!)
    Mandarin Oranges - canned in lite (pear juice) syrup
    Pears - canned in pear juice
    Peaches - canned in pear juice

    Broccoli - frozen organic, steamed and cut small
    Sweet potatoes - in puree or cubed
    Green beans - frozen organic, steamed and cut small (does NOT like these)
    Peas - frozen organic then steamed
    Black Beans - cooked from dried

    Corn - Corn Chex, Kixs and other only corn cereals. (LOVE THIS!!!) popcorn, whole kernels. I also bake with corn meal and corn flower
    Quinoa - just tried this yesterday. So far so good..

    Other funny foods:
    Hunt's Lemon Meringue Pudding Packs - free of top 8
    Hunt's Sugar Free Jello Packs - Free from top 8. No sugar or artificially sugar. Made with juices from all safe fruits we've already triedCandy Canes
    SoDelicious Coconut Milk Yogurt - HATED plain. LOVES blueberry and strawberry banana
    Organic Fruit leathers - Made only with safe fruits.

  2. Hi!

    Anyway, I'm going to add you to my blog list so that I can check back in. It's always nice to have other people in the same boat huh?
